On a night where only light rain fell throughout most of the game, it was the Waukon football team that provided the thunder and lightning in storming to a 40-11 wash-out of Union of La Porte City Friday, October 26 in the opening round of the Class 2A State Play-Offs. Having lit up the scoreboard near the 40-point range or above in its previous seven games of an eight-game win streak heading into the play-offs, the grid Tribe wasn’t quite sure what to expect in facing a Union team with which it has a lot of recent football history but which has ridden a bit of a roller coaster to a 6-3 regular season but an 11th consecutive State Play-Off appearance as well.
